Format:Audio CD
This is one of those scores that come so rarely. Music so completely evocative of the subject that it is hard to visualise the film without it. Robert Taylor came to England to make three movies. Ivanhoe, Knights of the Round table and Quentin Durwood. Rosza wrote the scores for the first two offerings and was oscar nominated for this film.
A splendid fanfare of trumpets opens with the Ivanhoe theme and full orchestra heralds the film, moving into the search for King Richard using a 13th century piece and then to sinister overtones for the finding of the King. Other cues are introduced for the Normans (a suitably menacing march), the Saxons (more pastoral and heroic)and two love themes, of which the theme for Rebecca (Elizabeth Taylor) is the better piece. A beautiful blend of Jewish and European melody. The music is by turns rousing and lyrical, but never dull, rising to a crescendo of violence as the Saxons Assault Torquilstone castle. The strident Norman themes gradually being overwhelmed by pounding action scores and a rousing rendition of the Saxon theme - although this ends with a tragic recital of rebeccas theme as the villian rides away from the battle with her on his saddle.
It only remains for the hero to ride to the rescue and King Richard to arrive and save the day, so England can kneel of two peoples and rise as one nation under good King Richard. The reality might have been different but the music makes you believe it for a moment.
This is an album to play many times. A glorious triumph for the composer, the music conjures up perfectly the age for which it is written, easily painting pictures of chivalric times in the minds eye.
A must for any serious collector of film music.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a re-recording 30 Dec 2011
By Bedinog
Format:Audio CD
One of the most frequent questions about film music (especially for old films)is 'Is it the original soundtrack or is it a re-recording?'and an equally frequent complaint is 'It's not as good as the original'. Leaving aside for the moment the fact that 'original' can often be sub-divided between not-always-small differences between original soundtrack per the film tracks and original soundtrack album (produced alongside the film), the biggest moan is usually to do with the sometimes lack, or apparent lack of pace of the re-recording compared to the 'original'.
Sometimes the moan is justified, other times, it's questionable but the fact is different things appeal to different people. Pacing sometimes has to do with timing music cues to the film scene, and the 'album' has to reflect that because it's (sort of) original too. An argument for generally slower tempi in a re-recording is to let the music breathe a bit, released as it is from the time strictures of the film itself. Sometimes this results in the music simply dragging, conversely, faster pace equivalent to the original score can just sound rushed rather than capture what the composer was after.
Another complication, pointed out by fellow Amazon reviewer Trevor Willsmer and others is that the scores, whether available to the the new artists complete or having to be reconstructed,were, (and are still) pared down or otherwise altered in the recording studio for artistic or technical purposes, so that rerecordings are sometimes more thickly orchestrated than the originals ended up.

Some of these considerations apply to this 1994 (is it that long ago?

5.0 out of 5 stars Long overdue re-recording of a masterpiece. 13 Dec 2013
By mihos
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the earlier 'spectacular' soundtracks for M.G.M. this is a real gem, superbly recorded by Bruce Broughton and the Sinfonia of London,doing justice to Rozas's wonderful score. In my view the music outshines the film! The drama, the action,and, most of all, the romance is vividly caught by a Master of film music,In particular the "Rebecca" theme .Quite beautifully weaving through the drama.. I saw the film as a child . and loved it, but the music stayed with me ,delighted,at last, to have a really excellent version of it.
